Community Service @ WLA

Community Service is an opportunity for students to serve others, while developing important leadership and self-management skills.

The required 100 hours of community service are an opportunity for WLA students to further personalize their educational experience and participate in project-based learning.

WLA students are encouraged to find meaningful community service opportunities that allow them to explore college and career interests, build on skills developed in the classroom, and cultivate their personal network.
